EXO-M leader Kris recently filed a lawsuit for termination of his exclusive contract with SM Entertainment, and has yet been unreachable but for his legal representation.
In the midst of Kris’ disappearance, Hankyul, the law firm in charge of Kris’ case, revealed the EXO member’s stance through an interview with Chinese media outlet Sina on May 16.
Hankyul said, “Kris spoke with his agency [SM Entertainment] several times, asking for equal treatment and for the agency to give consideration to his own ambitions as an artist. He had received movie and drama proposals, but these were refused by SM on several occasions,” revealing Kris’ ambitions for acting.
When asked about Kris’ whereabouts when he had previously disappeared from the team for over a month and his solo activities and auditions, the firm stated, “Kris did not leave the team in secret and participate in any auditions or other solo activities,” and added, “Kris’ agency was aware of all of Kris’ official and unofficial activities.”
In the meantime, SM just released a statement saying that the upcoming EXO solo concert will be held as planned, and that Kris’ attendance is unsure at the moment.
